Commander Andrew McGinly is a 2000 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. In 2002, he earned his wings of gold from NAS Meridian, MS. After initial training in the C-2A Greyhound at VAW-120 in Norfolk, VA, he reported to his initial assignment at VRC-30 in San Diego, CA in 2003.


While at VRC-30, Cmdr. McGinly completed a Western Pacific deployment while assigned to USS John C. Stennis, and made two deployments to U.S. 5th Fleet/Persian Gulf area of responsibility while attached to USS Carl Vinson and USS Ronald Reagan.

In 2007, he reported for instructor duty at VAW-120 in Norfolk, VA, teaching the next generation of C-2A Greyhound pilots the art of carrier onboard delivery. Commander McGinly transitioned to the full-time support community, and completed flight training in the C-130 before reporting to VR-54 in New Orleans, LA in 2009. Additionally, he served as maintenance officer and operations officer, completing multiple detachments to the U.S. 5th and 6th Fleets.


Cmdr. McGinly graduated from the U.S. Naval War College in 2013 and reported to Navy Personnel Command in Millington, TN to the Office of Career Progression (PERS-80). His primary duties included promotion selection board sponsor and ultimately deputy division director within PERS-80.


In his most recent assignment, he served as commanding officer of the Navy Reserve Professional Development Center.


McGinly has accumulated over 2,000 hours of flight time and 150 relatively uneventful carrier arrestments. His Navy flying career has taken him to six different continents and twelve different aircraft carriers.
